Share:
  • Voluntary safety recall program involves Continental and General brand tires in different sizes
  • Sudden air loss may occur. No reports of accidents
  • Tires will be replaced at no charge

Continental today announced a voluntary recall program involving approximately 12,000 Continental and General brand passenger vehicle tires that were sold to vehicle manufacturers and the aftermarket.

The tires may experience sudden air loss or belt edge separation which could lead to partial or full tread loss. The tires can be identified with the attached list that outlines the brand, size and Department of Transportation (DOT) week codes. Continental has not received any reports of accidents or injuries resulting from this condition and the company estimates that approximately 39 of these tires are defective.

Continental notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of the details of the recall on October 26, 2020. The company is in communication with the vehicle manufacturers to support notification of customers who purchased vehicles equipped with these tires. Owners will be promptly notified and informed about the details of the voluntary safety recall program.

Consumers seeking more information, including instructions for identifying affected tires as well as obtaining replacement tires are asked to visit Continental's Web site http://continentaltire.custhelp.com for more information.
